    Has anybody else seen The Reeds

    recently come back from two weeks on a houseboat and had the misfortune to see this utter nonsence one night.....if i was from norfolk id be insulted as all the local people were made out to be ....throw backs.....idiots.....interbreds...and utterly unhinged ......come back the evil dead .....all is forgiven :

    The Name Stracey Arms

    i have always known it as the stacey arms moorings and always stop there for the passage across breydon.....the shop is great for any last minute bits before crossing and they do a mean full english which for me is obligitery.....they were thinking of selling up ....dont know if they have yet....i hope not.....i remember the busy days and nights of the pub back in the seventys and the landlady being of the no nonsence type....i had the claim to disfame of being asked to leave for not taking my empty glasses back to the bar....which i thought a tad harsh......maybe it was something to do with there being 20 of us in motorbike gear.....but we were not rowdy and had spent a lot of money....ahh those were the days
